Bolgart Primary School (5052)
Bolgart Primary School is located in a small farming community in the wheat belt region of Western Australia, located an hour and fifteen minutes north-east of Perth.
At our school, we seek to ensure that our students develop values in the following areas;
- pursuit of knowledge and a commitment to the achievement of their full potential
- self-acceptance and respect of self
- respect and concern for others and their rights
- social and civic responsibility; environmental responsibility.
We provide an inclusive learning environment for children from kindergarten through to Year 6 and have strong links to a very active Parent & Citizen (P&C) Association and school council. Parent interaction in the school is encouraged and parents support activities such as assisting with the running of school events and sports days.
The school consists of two main classrooms, a library and resource centre, an art room, staff room, administration block and a science, technology, engineering and mathematics classroom. All buildings are air conditioned. We have a basketball court, grassed areas, oval, two large playground climbing sets and landscaped gardens. Each classroom has a full-time teacher supported by Education Assistants.
The school operates two classes, kindergarten - Year 2 and Year 3 - 6. Kindergarten is integrated into the early childhood learning area ensuring an easy transition into compulsory schooling. Our kindergarten students attend two full days during the first semester on Tuesday and Thursday. They then attend three full days during the second semester on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday inclusive.
Our students engage in a wide and varied curriculum that is designed to meet the learning needs of each child. The curriculum is child-centred and supports students to work in a collaborative learning environment. All students are provided with rich, engaging learning experiences that cover all aspects of the Western Australian curriculum. The students participate in excursions and incursions throughout the year to support curriculum delivery and student understanding. The school is equipped with computer equipment including desktop computers, laptops and iPads in a ratio of 1:1. Each year students participate in swimming and athletics carnivals along with coaching clinics for tennis, netball and football. Students showcase their artworks at the annual Toodyay Agricultural Show and their musical talents at the Small Schools Music Festival.
The strength of our school is the high level of parental involvement in all aspects of school life. The school council is consulted for policy making decisions and assists with the school's annual improvement and reporting processes. The P&C actively supports the learning programme of our students by purchasing resources and parents willingly contribute their time to support our students in many different ways, some of which include listening to students read, assisting with camps and transporting students to special events.
We provide a warm, friendly and supportive environment where all students can access a first class education. Find out more call 08 9627 5245.
